One of my favorite ways to enter a new season is with a bold new lip color. As temperatures start to rise, I usually trade in my everyday nude lip color in favor of bolder, more saturated hues. This spring, the hi-def lip trend is one of the easiest ways to update your beauty routine. It’s all about dominant pinks and reds that pack a punch. I typically go for a hot pink or juicy red lip color. To bring in some dimension, I almost always add a high-shine gloss over the top of whatever lip color I’m wearing. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite pink and red shades that look great on everyone.
Nordstrom is always my first stop when it comes to staying on top of the latest beauty trends. I purchase the majority of my beauty products there because of their fast and free shipping and I love earning credit card points too! They have one of the widest selections of my favorite brands like YSL, Bobbi Brown and MAC.
Favorite Saturated Pinks
YSL is one of my go-to brands for the perfect shade of pink. I’m wearing the Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick lipstick in the color ‘Trapeze Pink’ (No. 52) and I layered the Volupte Liquid Balm in the color ‘Chase Me Nude’ (No. 12) over the top for extra shine. Some of my other favorite pink shades are Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Hot Lips’ lipstick in the shade ‘Bosworth’s Beauty,’ Laura Mercier’s Velour Extreme Matte lipstick in the shade ‘Bring It,’ Bobbi Brown’s Luxe lip color in the shade ‘Posh Pink,’ MAC’s lipstick in the shade ‘Bombshell,’ and Tom Ford’s Patent Finish lip color in the shade ‘Erotic.’
Best Velvety Reds
A great red lipstick never goes out of style. I love wearing a bold red lip with an all white or black outfit to really let my lip color make the statement. Some of my favorite shades of red are: YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture lip color in the shade ‘Le Rouge,’ MAC’s Red lipstick in the shade ‘Dangerous,’ NARS’ Powermate lip pigment in the shade ‘Don’t Stop,’ YSL’s ‘Rouge Volupte Shine’ Oil-in-Stick lipstick in the shade ‘Orange Perfecto,’ Dior’s Couture Rouge Lipstick in the shade ‘Red Smile,’ and Dior’s Rouge Liquid lip stain in the shade ‘Matte.’
